At once danceable and reflective, familiar and nostalgic, Humming House is a musical experiment gone right. Woven together from diverse backgrounds (Americana, classical composition, bluegrass, soul, and traditional Irish music), their playground of musical exploration has something for every generation. Unmistakable pop sensibilities mixed with a depth of lyrical narrative give their whimsical songs an irresistible quality that can only be described by the imagery of the name – Humming House.

The Black Lillies

Black Lillies front man Cruz Contreras and his bandmates — harmony vocalist Trisha Gene Brady, multi-instrumentalist Tom Pryor, bass player Robert Richards and drummer Bowman Townsend — have grown from a few friends sitting around campfires and living rooms to a band that shows up in far-flung cities where folks to whom they’ve never played before already know the words to the songs.

The Mulligan Brothers

The Mulligan Brothers from Mobile, Alabama, proves that good stories and lyrics still matter in music and well-written songs don’t need a catchy chorus or a happy ending to win over an audience or to be played over and over. The band’s debut album, “The Mulligan Brothers,” was in the Offbeat’s list of the Top Ten of CD sales at the 2014 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Tiger Maple String Band

Tiger Maple String Band is an energetic collection of talented musicians dedicated to continuing traditional and original old time music. Residing in Northwest Pennsylvania, our rural setting gives plenty of inspiration towards the continuance of acoustic music. The band features Lori Burke and Jenny Hunt on vocals, Justine and Alison Parker on Fiddle, Barry Smith on Banjo, Sam Reese on Bass, Frank Bercik on Mandolin, and Fred Parker on Guitar and vocals.

The sound of Tiger Maple String Band has rich historical and cultural values, Beautiful harmonies, Hot Old Time Fiddling and full body richness that only acoustic instruments and clear vocals can bring. The band draws its inspiration from a variety of different musical directions. The main source of inspiration is old time Appalachian tunes. Fiddle tunes, mountain ballads, murder ballads, coal mining songs and beautiful originals make up a set that leaves a lasting impression on their audience and folks walk away with big smiles and a good feeling of friendship and love.

The N.A. Fiddlers

NA_FiddlersThe N.A. Fiddlers, under the direction of Dennis Morton, a string teacher within the North Allegheny School District, was organized in 2002 for students within the district interested in expanding their love and knowledge of music.

The students representing the N.A. Fiddlers are in grades 6 through 12. These fiddlers participate in a weeklong workshop during the summer months. Tunes are taught and learned in the traditional aural style, meaning by ear and without the use of written notes. Local folk musician Mark Tamsula www.appalachianmusic.net attends each workshop and presents the students with a variety of styles including Scottish, Irish, Old Timey, Scandinavian and Cajun.
